Sandown Hillside Tips & Previews, Wednesday 14th July

The best tips and previews from Wednesday racing at Sandown Hillside.

Back to Sandown for Wednesday racing as we link up with the Hillside track.

The rail has been shifted out to the 14-metre position which should favour horses who race on the speed. 

The Wizard of Odds has found a filly in the early program who should keep up with her winning ways.

Sandown Hillside Race 2

#1 Twist Of Fury

In what is such an even race from a talent perpsective, putting a big emphasis on the map here and going with the likely leader Twist Of Fury.

The three-year-old filly from the David Brideoake yard won impressively at Cranbourne last start after owning the lead and kicking clear to hold on by just under a length. 

She stays at BM-70 grade and her two-kilo rise in the weights is countered by Lachlan Neindorf’s two-kilo claim. 

He showed his aggressive riding nature on High Risk last week at this track and distance, so expect a similar ride here. 

Suggested Bet: Twist of Fury win at $4.6

Suggested Exotic: Trifecta 1/ 9, 12/ 9, 12, 15

Sandown Hillside Race 3

#6 Miss Bank Place

Miss Bank Place was given a tough time of it at Sandown last week after being planted three-wide on the speed with no cover.

It was the first she had ever at 1300 metres and she did a good job to finish as close as she did. 

An extra 100 metres of distance to work with in this race could potentially see her settle in the lead. 

If that occurs, she will be hard to run down with the rail out as far as it is.  

Carleen Hefel remains in the saddle, claims three kilos, and the instructions here should be quite simple; jump quickly and find the lead or sit outside the lead. 

Suggested Bet: Miss Bank Place each-way at $12 the win and $3.6 the place. 

Suggested Exotic: Quinella 2 & 6

Sandown Hillside Race 6

#4 Bondi Sands

Bondi Sands has settled into life in Australia nicely since being imported by Danny O’Brien. 

His second run in Australia saw him win nicely over 2100 metres and that was followed by a slightly disappointing run behind Grand Promenade when starting a $4.6 elect in BM-84 grade. 

O’Brien has since given him a break to get over that run and the big guide here is that Damien Oliver hops in the saddle. 

While the favourite will be hard to run down, on paper, this looks to be a high-pressure 1800-metre race, of of which our selection has the fitness base to handle it. 

Suggested Bet: Bondi Sands each-way at $12 the win and $3.60 the place.

Suggested Exotic: Quinella 4 & 11

Sandown Hillside Race 7

#12 Excelida

The punters left it in the bag after she was heavily backed at Sandown Hillside last week.

The four-year-old mare from the Ben & JD Hayes stable had no luck in the straight during a 1300-metre BM-70 event after being held from the top of straight to the last 50 metres. 

With the bird having flown, jockey Damien Oliver did not even bother pushing her out late in the race and nursed her to the line. 

Now we get $5.5 instead of $2.6 to find it out if she can get some even luck from an inside barrier but this time it’s Michael Dee being entrusted to get the job done. 

Suggested Bet: Excelida each-way at $5.5 the win and $2.15 the place.
